When “Updating” Isn’t What Your Kitchen Needs

As much time as I spend helping clients update kitchens, I suppose I’m a bit of a hypocrite. Because there’s nothing “updated” about my own kitchen.  My home was built in 1939, and the kitchen appears to have been updated in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

Home Staging Comes Full Circle

Over five years ago, I staged an occupied home in Franklin for some friends who were moving out-of-state.  It sold to a family who were new to the Nashville area.  The new homeowners soon contacted me about helping them decorate their “new” home.  It was a fun experience working with two different clients with different furnishings in the same house!

All You Need to Become an Expert Psychological Stager™

I am really excited to offer this opportunity to those of you who are ready to start your own Home Staging business or take your game to the next level as a Home Staging professional.
Over a decade of home staging, I have developed a unique system and mindset for staging properties to sell. This method has earned me both local and national Home Staging Awards and has made The Decorologist™ one of the most well-known staging experts in the country. This course will teach you a whole new way of thinking about Home Staging and set you up to apply advanced staging techniques to any residential property.  Not to mention, you will leave the course as a certified Expert Psychological Stager™ (EPS).  As you probably know, there are other training programs out there – and we encourage you to check them out before deciding whether or not you want to take our course.  Our price is highly competitive and the specialization of the training will set you apart from the rest.

WHEN: September 18th, 19th, and 20th, 2014

The training will be from 9-5 on Thursday and Friday, and 9 until about 1pm on Saturday, including a mix and mingle event on Thursday evening.  Over the three days, I will answer all your questions and give you hands-on experience that you cannot receive by just reading books and blogs.  I will walk you through training exercises that will teach you how to put my techniques into practice.  On the final day of training, you will actually be onsite, staging a real home on the market with one of the top realtors in Nashville.
